A nice stop while in Ybor City. The beers here are average to very good with a few stand out examples (the Wit and Hefe-Weizen are very good). The service was just OK, as the bartender gave me a hard time for wanting my 12 beer selections in the sampler 4 at a time (I always prefer this so they don't go flat and I can comment on their head retention, etc). The food was very good. I shared a Calzone and Bangers-n-mash with some friends. The atmosphere is slightly rustic and food time was average. Be warned, the parking police in Ybor City are Nazi's. (555 characters)

Go here about once a week. Staff is always very nice and most of the time attentive. Food selection is good with specials happening most days of the week. Gets busy on the weekend but has plenty of outdoor seating/outdoor bar also. If had one complaint it would be the lack of guest taps, there are a few both nothing special. This is only off putting because its really a resturant with a brewery inside it (unlike their new location), so it makes you want a little more variety of beer when you come here often. This though is a great place to have a good beer with great people and is a huge hit with out of town friends. (624 characters)

Large venue with both indoor and outdoor seating including a large table for large parties. 8 regular taps [although out of one on my visit] plus 3 seasonals. Good service but understaffed for the large mid week lunch crowd. Food looked good. Large pub atmosphere. Flatscreen TVs available but not featured. (310 characters)
